All images are first opened in Adobe Camera Raw or Capture One, where any necessary adjustments are made to correct exposure and color balance. Images are then exported to Photoshop, where final adjustments are made before saving a large TIFF master file. Individual images used to create a finished panorama are first opened in Kolor Autopano Pro for stitching, before completing the above process. Each print order is first sized to the exact print size specifications, before being saved as a new image master file, and uploaded to the photo lab for printing. Individual files can easily exceed one gigabyte in size, resulting in exceptional quality through all print sizes.
